Wastewater asset management is a practice many operators use to develop long-term plans for sustaining wastewater systems and services.
With WinCan, old data isn’t lost data. WinCan’s data specialists can migrate archival sewer inspection data efficiently and accurately, regardless of its age or format, so it’s both usable and insightful.
A sewer lateral is the pipe connecting a home or business’ plumbing to the city’s sanitary sewer system. These pipes typically run underneath the house or business’ property before connecting with a larger pipe, called a sewer main, under the street or other nearby area.
It’s been called “the canary in the coal mine”: testing raw sewage for traces of the COVID-19 can help track the disease’s circulation in a community—often well before the official case count is available.
WinCan is always looking ahead at ways to integrate new technology into our software, including the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for automatic defect recognition and classification.
Our new AI toolkit, Sewermatics, helps improve operator accuracy, automatically detects defects in video inspections, assigns defect codes and auto-populates data like size, position and water level in 30 languages.
Gathering More Data in Less Time
WinCan Web is the leading online platform for sewer teams to collaborate remotely. It includes powerful tools for managing, sharing and analyzing sewer inspection data, and for supporting asset management and maintenance planning across a wastewater collection system.
An upgraded version of WinCan’s CleverScan software module (1.7) includes several new and updated features to improve user experience. Version 1.7 now offers
As with many other industries, sewer professionals are having to find unique ways to perform their essential responsibilities while following strict safety and health regulations amidst COVID-19. However, with online workflows, crew members can continue close collaboration, regardless of their geographic location. WinCan recently presented a free webinar to demonstrate how team members can continue to manage and share sewer inspection data instantaneously, even with those working remotely, and to highlight a new breed of cloud-based technology specifically tailored to the sewer industry.
A sewer rehabilitation plan identifies the work needed on a sewer system and outlines a strategy for how the work is to be completed. While putting a plan together can be time-consuming, it offers a great return on investment, ultimately saving a department time and resources.
The “cloud” refers to applications that run on the internet, instead of on a local computer or piece of equipment. Essentially, when something is running on the cloud it is stored on a remote server (usually multiple copies at multiple locations, actually).
